Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth McAllister
Another "Step into Reading" book for Grades 1-3, this is a funny story about best friends who are alike in many ways. They even have a tooth missing in the same place. But, a fight over another lost tooth causes Arlo and Robby to rethink their friendship. Can a "tooth" come between friends?
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Best friends Robby and Arlo dress alike and do most of the same things. However, their friendship is in jeopardy over a bet about who will lose the next tooth. Hafner's realistic and humorous illustrations provide ample reading clues on every page. (Check out Arlo's daydream vision of the tooth fairy flying over a disbelieving cat!) This book is unassuming but provides a good story for young readers on peer relationships as they learn to balance their wants with others. It should encourage emerging readers to flex their reading muscles. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, Idaho
